Evidence suggests that obesity-induced cognitive impairments are driven by in brain inflammatory responses and inflammation-mediated brain insulin resistance. Ursolic acid (UA), a triterpenoid compound, has many important biological functions, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Here, we evaluated the effect of UA on cognitive impairment induced by a high-fat diet (HFD), and we explored the potential mechanisms mediating this effect. Results showed that UA administration… 
Troxerutin Counteracts Domoic Acid–Induced Memory Deficits in Mice by Inhibiting CCAAT/Enhancer Binding Protein β–Mediated Inflammatory Response and Oxidative Stress
TLDR
It is shown that troxerutin inhibits cyclin-dependent kinase 1 expression, enhances type 1 protein phosphatase α dephosphorylation, and abolished MEK/ERK1/2/C/EBP β activation, which subsequently reverses the memory impairment observed in the DA-treated mice.
Ursolic acid improves domoic acid-induced cognitive deficits in mice.
TLDR
The results showed that FoxO1 knockdown reversed the mitochondrial abnormalities and cognitive deficits induced by DA in mice through decreasing HO-1 expression, and UA could be recommended as a possible candidate for the prevention and therapy of cognitive deficits in excitotoxic brain disorders.
α-Lipoic acid attenuates obesity-associated hippocampal neuroinflammation and increases the levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor in ovariectomized rats fed a high-fat diet.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that α-LA significantly increases the expression of BDNF in the hippocampus of obese ovariectomized rats fed HFD, possibly by improving lipid metabolism, enhancing insulin sensitivity and reversing central inflammation.

TLDR
The beneficial effects of PSPC on HFD-induced kidney dysfunction and damage are mediated through NLRP3 signaling pathways, suggesting a potential target for the prevention of obesity.
High-salt- and cholesterol diet-associated cognitive impairment attenuated by tannins-enriched fraction of Emblica officinalis via inhibiting NF-kB pathway
TLDR
This study confirms that EOT may be a promising therapy in ameliorating the neurotoxicity of HSCD; however further studies are warranted to elucidate the exact mechanism of action of EOT.
Renoprotective effects of ursolic acid on ischemia/reperfusion‑induced acute kidney injury through oxidative stress, inflammation and the inhibition of STAT3 and NF‑κB activities.
TLDR
Results indicated that ursolic acid may be a potential drug for reducing I/R‑IAKI through suppression of inflammation and oxidative stress damage, as well as modulation of STAT3 and NF‑κB activities.
Rosuvastatin Attenuates High-Salt and Cholesterol Diet Induced Neuroinflammation and Cognitive Impairment via Preventing Nuclear Factor KappaB Pathway
TLDR
The results suggest that HSCD-triggered inflammatory response and cognitive impairment may be associated with NF-κB signaling pathway and treatment with rosuvastatin could be a potential new therapeutic strategy for sporadic dementia of AD.
High mobility group box-1 mediates hippocampal inflammation and contributes to cognitive deficits in high-fat high-fructose diet-induced obese rats
TLDR
It is indicated that HMGB1 mediates the hippocampal inflammation and contributes to the cognitive deficits in HFHFD-induced obesity and inhibition ofHMGB1 may have beneficial effect in protecting against hippocampalinflammation and cognitive deficit in dietary obesity.
Diet-induced obesity progressively alters cognition, anxiety-like behavior and lipopolysaccharide-induced depressive-like behavior: Focus on brain indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase activation
TLDR
WD exposure alters cognition and anxiety in unstimulated conditions and enhances activation of neurobiological mechanisms underlying depression after immune stimulation, suggesting that obesity, and possibly obesity-associated inflammatory priming, may represent a vulnerability state to immune-mediated depressive symptoms.
Tetrahydropalmatine Alleviates Hyperlipidemia by Regulating Lipid Peroxidation, Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress, and Inflammasome Activation by Inhibiting the TLR4-NF-κB Pathway
TLDR
Data indicate that THP attenuates HLP through a variety of effects, including antioxidative stress, anti-ER stress, and anti-inflammatory effects.

Ursolic acid attenuates D-galactose-induced inflammatory response in mouse prefrontal cortex through inhibiting AGEs/RAGE/NF-κB pathway activation.
TLDR
Ursolic acid administration significantly improved behavioral performance of D-gal-treated mice in step-through test and Morris water maze task and significantly decreased AGEs induced the expression of receptor for advanced glycation end products and inhibited NF-κB p65 nuclear translocation in the prefrontal cortex of D -gal- treated mice.
Troxerutin protects against high cholesterol-induced cognitive deficits in mice.
TLDR
The results suggest that troxerutin could be recommended as a possible candidate for the prevention and therapy of cognitive deficits in type 2 diabetes mellitus and Alzheimer's disease.
Trace amounts of copper exacerbate beta amyloid-induced neurotoxicity in the cholesterol-fed mice through TNF-mediated inflammatory pathway
TLDR
Findings suggest that trace amounts of copper could induce APP upregulation, activate inflammatory pathway and exacerbate neurotoxicity in cholesterol-fed mice.
Hypothalamic IKKβ/NF-κB and ER Stress Link Overnutrition to Energy Imbalance and Obesity
TLDR
The results show that the hypothalamic IKKbeta/NF-kappaB program is a general neural mechanism for energy imbalance underlying obesity and suggest that suppression of IKK beta either broadly across the brain or locally within the mediobasal hypothalamus, or specifically in hypothalamic AGRP neurons significantly protects against obesity and glucose intolerance.
Ursolic acid ameliorates cognition deficits and attenuates oxidative damage in the brain of senescent mice induced by D-galactose.
TLDR
The results indicated that the neuroprotective effect of UA against D-gal induced neurotoxicity might be caused, at least in part, by the increase in the activity of antioxidant enzymes with a reduction in lipid peroxidation.
Quercetin activates AMP‐activated protein kinase by reducing PP2C expression protecting old mouse brain against high cholesterol‐induced neurotoxicity
TLDR
Oral administration of quercetin significantly improved the behavioural performance of high‐cholesterol‐fed old mice in both a step‐through test and the Morris water maze task, and suggest that AMPK activated by quercETin may be a potential target to enhance the resistance of neurons to age‐related diseases.
Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress Links Obesity, Insulin Action, and Type 2 Diabetes
TLDR
It is shown that obesity causes endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, which leads to suppression of insulin receptor signaling through hyperactivation of c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) and subsequent serine phosphorylation of insulin receptors substrate–1 (IRS-1).

It is demonstrated that six-week treatment with PGF extract in Zucker diabetic fatty rats reduced the ratios of van Gieson-stained interstitial collagen deposit area to total left ventricular area and perivascular collagen deposit areas to coronary artery media area in the heart.
